Olivia Newton-John – Livin’ In Desperate Times (US 7″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 25th September 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

Happy Birthday Olivia Newton-John!

Produced by David Foster the epic track “Livin’ In Desperate Times” was the second single released from the Soundtrack to the film “Two Of A Kind”. “Livin’ In Desperate Times” debuted on the Billboard Top 40 on February 25, 1984. The single remained on the chart for five weeks peaking at #31.

ABOUT THE VERSIONS:

In 1998 MCA Records released the soundtrack for the motion picture “Two Of A Kind” on CD for the first time, however the mix of “Livin’ In Desperate Times” was not the original album version that appeared on the vinyl, cassette and 8-track releases in 1983. Instead MCA chose to use a sloppy newly made edit because the original master could not be found. Subsequently this new edit was also used on the “Gold” compilation in 2005. Both the 7″ remix and original LP version remain unreleased on CD or digital format.

The US 7″ promo of “Livin’ In Desperate Times” has the 7″ remix on both sides. Because the original LP version is just as sought sought after I used it as the b-side.

SIDE A:
Livin’ In Desperate Times (7″ Remix) 3:58

SIDE B:

Erasure – Heavenly Action (Yellow Brick Mix) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 11th September 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Heavenly Action” is a song by the British synthpop duo Erasure, released in November 1985 as their second single.

Issued by Mute Records in the UK and Sire Records in the U.S., the single proved to be the second commercial failure for the duo (following “Who Needs Love Like That”).

The mid-tempo pop song, written by Erasure members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, is a straightforward ode to love. The music video features Clarke and Bell in an outer space/celestial setting, with several young children appearing as angels.

To this day, “Heavenly Action” remains Erasure’s lowest-charting single on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 100. In the United States, “Heavenly Action” was paired with “Who Needs Love Like That” on the 12 inch single and, as a double-sided hit, climbed to number eight on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.

The song was later included on the duo’s debut album Wonderland, released in June 1986.

The UK only “Yellow Brick Mix” was at one time considered one of the rarest and most expensive commercially released Erasure items.
